EMPIRE STRIKES BACK - Never Before Seen Hoth Battle Storyboard Art

The battle that took place on Hoth in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is in my mind one of the greatest battle scenes in all of the Star Wars films. I remember seeing this scene for the first time and being completely blown away by it. Even to this day it's awesome to watch! 

Here we have a never before seen collection of storyboard art detailing the Hoth battle sequence. It gives you a good look at how this scene was planned out before it went in front of cameras. According to io9, "These boards and are based on the fifth draft of the script for the movie — and most of the boards here are being shown publicly for the first time." 

The work you see hear was actually done by Captain America director Joe Johnston before he became a director. He's also the guy who created the badass suit for Boba Fett. It also includes storyboard art from Nilo Rodis-Jamero.

Check out the collection of Hoth bottle storyboard art below, which is presented in chronological order of the sequence. Enjoy!
